These are some of the questions I am currently trying to address in my research:
What explains variation in female electoral participation upon enfranchisement? The role of industrialization and ideology formation
What are the consequences of exposure to terrorism on incumbent support?
How does the use of violent tactics affect support for social movements?
I am broadly interested in political behavior and comparative politics. My research combines observational and experimental evidence.
Currently, I am working on a historical political science project on the formation of the democratic electorate during the 1930s, in which we analyze the role of political organizations in electorally mobilizing low-resource voters, and the consequences of the introduction of female suffrage. Other topics on which I work, or have recently worked, include: preferences for redistribution, preferences for secession, the role of coalitions in shaping vote choice, political involvement and turnout, and political trust in multilevel governments.
